LabRoots to host this webinar, providing participants insight into the capabilities offered in modern, high quantum efficiency cameras equipped with computational imaging
Tucson, Ariz. — During this webinar, Photometrics will create familiarity with extremely high efficiency cameras along with computational imaging as modern tools for biomedical instrument builders. Attendees will see firsthand how Photometrics encourages partners to break the model of “cameras are only good for imaging.” LabRoots will host the webinar on February 15, 2018, beginning at 10:00 a.m. PST, 1:00 p.m. EST. Steve Smith, PhD and OEM marketing manager at Photometrics is the speaker for the event.
Modern biomedical instruments used in research or diagnostic applications often rely on cameras as detectors. Cameras in instruments are employed for many purposes ranging from high resolution fluorescence imaging in High Throughput / High Content Screening to quantifying protein concentrations in chemiluminescence-based western blotting.
Photometrics has a rich history of supplying and supporting instrument builders with imaging solutions. Recently released cameras have pushed the boundaries of imaging technology as well as pioneered the pragmatic application of computational imaging. “Computational imaging is the practice of harnessing processing power available in integrated FPGAs to deliver not only images, but better answers faster,” said Steve Smith.
Cameras can be thought of as the engine at the center of an instrument and as such, can do much more than just produce images. Many strategies for using computational algorithms will be discussed– from plugging in standard routines that Photometrics has developed, to efficient use of computational space to deploy custom processing. Case studies will be used to illustrate the utility of computational imaging.
Steve Smith completed a BS in Biological Sciences and PhD in Biomedical Sciences from Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, Colorado. His career has focused on microscopy and imaging, spanning from laser scanning confocal and multiphoton techniques to camera-based systems. Dr. Smith joined Photometrics in 2014 and has been part of the company’s dedicated effort to work with OEM customers on camera integration across a wide array of instruments.
